    Default x265 codec

    A fairly new codec that is lightyears ahead of the common x264 in compression efficiency and video quality. Sadly, my PBO core won't play it. It doesn't choke or fail to open the file, it actually plays, just produces a blank screen with the sound working properly. Is there's a hack or firmware upgrade that handles x265? A search came up empty. Thanks.

    No hack or firmware for the PBO core can decode x265 AFAIK.

    Cheers!

    Any updates on this? Still no x265 codec?

    There are no software updates that would ever make this possible; you need a lot of processing power to decode H265. You need a player with a hardware H265 decoder built-in which the PBO does not have.
